The east coast is home, and I like it. I’ve been traveling a lot the past 3 weeks, and I like that too. My travel started when I went to Chicago recently, then to Urbana-Champagne for a conference at the University of Illinois. It was weird though, it felt homey in an unnerving but good sort of way. I’d always considered myself to be an east coaster, but maybe not? Who says I can’t go wherever? I worked this summer in Austria which was really amazing. I could see myself living there too, but somehow, that seems less radical than moving off the coast. The rest of my traveling has been up and down the east coast because I have a lot of friends here to visit. Anyway, I’m enjoying the break, but will be looking forward to being able to sit down at home.
